Blizzard Watch

Statement as of 3:52 AM EST on January 25, 2015

Expires 1:00 AM EST on January 28, 2015


... Blizzard watch in effect from Monday evening through late
Tuesday night...

The National Weather Service in Taunton has issued a blizzard
watch... which is in effect from Monday evening through late
Tuesday night.

* Locations... eastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island.

* Hazard types... heavy snow... strong winds and blizzard
conditions. Considerable blowing and drifting snow.

* Accumulations... snow accumulation of 18 to 24 inches.

* Timing... the worst of the storm will be Monday night through
Tuesday afternoon.

* Impacts... heavy snow and strong winds will result in the
potential for blizzard conditions with near zero visibility.
Along the southeast New England coast... the snow may be wet
enough to result in some downed tree limbs and power outages.
Travel may become impossible and life threatening across the
entire region. This has the potential to be a historic storm.

* Winds... north 20 to 30 mph with gusts up to 60 mph.

* Temperatures... in the lower 20s.

* Visibilities... one quarter mile or less at times.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A blizzard watch means there is a potential for considerable
falling and/or blowing snow with sustained winds or frequent
gusts over 35 mph and visibilities below 1/4 mile for at least
3 hours. Whiteout conditions will be possible... making travel
very dangerous. Be prepared to alter any travel plans.





Coastal Flood Watch

Statement as of 4:07 AM EST on January 25, 2015

Expires 7:00 PM EST on January 27, 2015


... Coastal Flood Watch in effect from late Monday night through
Tuesday evening...

The National Weather Service in Taunton has issued a coastal
Flood Watch... which is in effect from late Monday night through
Tuesday evening.

* Location... the eastern Massachusetts coast including Cape Cod
and Nantucket.

* Coastal flooding... moderate to perhaps isolated pockets of major
coastal flooding are possible along with considerable beach
erosion.

* Timing... during the early Tuesday morning and late Tuesday
afternoon high tide cycles.

* Impacts... flooding of vulnerable shore roads and basements
possible. Some structural damage is also possible along with
considerable beach erosion.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A coastal Flood Watch means that the potential exists for
moderate or major coastal flooding. Moderate coastal flooding
produces widespread flooding of vulnerable shore roads and/or
basements due to the height of storm tide and/or wave action.
Numerous Road closures are needed. Lives may be at risk for
people who put themselves in harms way. Isolated structural
damage may be observed.

Major coastal flooding is considered severe enough to cause at
least scattered structural damage along with widespread flooding
of vulnerable shore roads and/or basements. Some vulnerable
homes will be severely damaged or destroyed. Numerous roads are
impassable... some with washouts severe enough to be life-
threatening if one attempted to cross on foot or by vehicle. Some
neighborhoods will be isolated. Evacuation of some neighborhoods
may be necessary.



All tide heights are relative to mean lower low water.
Time of high total tides are approximate to the nearest hour.
